About Verisense

Verisense is Shimmer’s wearable wireless sensing platform for Clinical Trials. Shimmer has been a leading provider of wearable wireless sensing solutions for research and commercial solutions for over 10 years. In that time we have seen the demand for the use of wearables in Clinical Trials grow rapidly. Our standard Shimmer3 platform has been used in many such trials.

However it has become increasingly clear from dialogue with various stakeholders in the industry that current wearable platforms built for regular consumer and research use, do not fit the needs of Sponsors and Clinical Trial Managers.

With this in mind and using our experience in designing and producing award winning wearable solutions, meet Verisense

Sensing Solutions

Verisense IMU is commonly worn on the wrist to monitor activity and sleep metrics seamlessly.

Flexible, modular design also allows for placement on different body parts to open a range of sensing applications.

Provides raw data 6DoF inertial sensing via Accel & Gyro.


Verisense Pulse+ is a wrist worn sensor that that provides photoplethysmogram (PPG), galvanic skin response (GSR), and an inertial measurement unit (IMU).

Measures clinical trial participants’ heart rate, oxygen saturation and GSR/EDA in addition to their activity and sleep levels.

All signals can be measured simultaneously.

All raw data is provided.
